The Week Ahead (Feb. 28-Mar. 4)

February 25, 2011
11:58 AM
Week of Feb. 28 – Mar. 4
--On Wednesday, March 2, the full committee will hear from Secretary Ken Salazar during its annual oversight hearing on the Interior Department’s proposed budget for 2012.  (Dirksen 366 at 10:00 a.m.)
--On Thursday, March 3, the full committee will hold an oversight hearing on the budget request for the USDA Forest Service for 2012.  Chief Tom Tidwell will be the sole witness.  (Dirksen 366 at 9:30 a.m.)
Before many of our hearings, reporters call and ask to reserve a seat.  Our Committee does not reserve specific seats for the media, we do one better: we guarantee seating inside our hearing room.  Our promise is to provide a chair to every credentialed reporter attending our hearings – even if it means redirecting Senate staff and others to an overflow room.
